Return To Nuke ‘em High Vol. 1 Exclusive Sneak Preview At Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival
An exclusive sneak-preview of 40 year-old Troma Entertainment’s Return to Nuke ‘Em High Volume 1, directed by legendary auteur Lloyd Kaufman, will be held at Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival.
At Kaufman’s request, all proceeds from this exclusive preview will be donated to the Niagara Arts & Cultural Center (NACC), a 501(C)(3) non-for-profit organization in Niagara Falls, where much of Return to Nuke ‘Em High Volume 1 was shot. Kaufman says “I am delighted to express my appreciation to the NACC and to return the generosity of the loving Niagara/Buffalo citizens that do so much to support independent art and Troma.”
“This is a coup for our festival,” says Buffalo Dreams co-director Gregory Lamberson. “Lloyd created The Toxic Avenger, a seminal film which has influenced a whole generation of mainstream filmmakers from Tarantino to Eli Roth to James Gunn. Genre fans are now waiting to see Return to Nuke ‘Em High Volume 1 in order to discover what happens next in Tromaville. We get to preview the film and honor Lloyd Kaufman the same weekend.”
Return to Nuke 'Em High: Volume 1 is a hilarious, thoughtful sci-fi Event Film with themes ripped straight from today's headlines: the contamination and degradation of the world's food supply, rampant bullying, LGBTQ love triumphing over prejudice and violence. The film is a revisiting of Troma's 1986 cult Class of Nuke 'Em High. Troma Entertainment is one of the longest-running independent movie studios in United States history and Kaufman’s body of work has been cited as influence by Peter Jackson, Quentin Tarantino, Takashi Miike, Eli Roth, and James Gunn just to name a few.
Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival will show over 80 movies from around the world Friday, November 8th – Thursday, November 14th. Visit
